we had him on camera for several years but never during a hunt. Found his skeleton. I believe he died of old age. [Linked Image]

Better than finding him on your place dead from a neighbor's arrow wound. bang

He lived and ended his life his way and you still get to appreciate him. up

Similar experience this past year. Found my target buck from 2018-2021 dead this past fall. Based off the antlers he died just after shedding in September of 2021. Was in perfect body condition so assuming old age. Not sure if the shedding period is a risk period for bucks or not when it comes to disease

Pretty neat that you were able to find him. Like most I’m sure we have several that have disappeared over the years, would love to know what happened to them.

Yes. I would be happy to have the dead head. A beauty of a buck!

Always a bummer. At least you got a deadhead out of it. That is more than you can say most of the time.

I don’t know if it was old age. He declined rapidly during hunting season in 2020. Plot twist, it’s the same deer eek2
